These are too near field to represent actual performance.
At regular price, I'd have to choose the Primus over these. At the crazy sale price I got these, I'd give these the go ahead. They are just much better built than the Primus. The Primus doesn't feel cheap, but these are very stout and have a more ritzy appearance. Even the binding posts are upscale. If you're a pretentious snob, these are your speakers.(kidding) Can't go wrong with either IMO and if you can find these at near the price of the Primus, I'd say go with these.
